The Joint Biology Research Retreat encompasses the graduate programs of Biochemistry and Molecular & Cellular Biology and Molecular Medicine. In addition to our Keynote Speaker, activities include talks by senior graduate students and new faculty and a poster session for junior graduate students. The retreat is hosted by the Molecular and Cellular Biology, Cellular and Molecular Medicine, Immunobiology, and Chemistry and Biochemistry departments. This retreat is a great way for students and faculty to interact and network their ideas, form collaborations, and hear about the exciting research being conducted by their fellow colleagues at the University of Arizona.
Keynote speaker: Steven A. Goldman, M.D., Ph.D.
University of Rochester Medical Center
Goldman's lab studies the regulatory control of stem and progenitor cells of the human CNS, and plans to utilize that knowledge to design new approaches for treating neurological diseases, primarily using cell and gene therapy.
New faculty and fourth year students are expected to give talks with more information to follow in future emails. Second and third year students will be presenting a poster, again with more info to follow about dates and deadlines. Start prepping your abstracts!
All other students and faculty are encouraged to attend and listen to the research being conducted on campus and meet new students and faculty, meet potential collaborators, and enjoy the wonder of the Biosphere 2.
